Located in Daley Plaza, The Chicago Picasso was dedicated to the city in 1967. Although it is technically untitled, the sculpture is commonly referred to as The Chicago Picasso or simply The Picasso. Pablo Picasso designed the sculpture at the age of 85. He had been approached by William E. Hartmann, a representative of the Skidmore, Owings, and Merrill law firm, and the firm had taken a role in the development of the then-new Civic Center. Mr. Hartmann gave Picasso several incentives, including a White Sox Blazer, a Sioux war bonnet, and $100,000, to create the sculpture.
